So, I’ve been perhaps the worst blogger of all time. The last time I posted something of note that wasn’t a video was July 13… [blog fail]
Anyway. Instead of retroactively writing blogs about the past, I’m just going to give you a nice set of demi-blogges about things that have happened from then to now and then be a good blogger and post on a regular basis, instead of having another one of these posts…
Things that have happened since I have last blogged:
- I went to Minneapolis for a week to have a lot of fun with friends I met when I was in Italy in 2007. Lots of fun ensued, including a viewing of Harry Potter 6 after having quite a few cocktails…Like 4 STRONG martinis. Other highlights included going to the beach (yes, they do, in fact have beaches within the city limits) & running into people I knew from SLC that now live in the Twin Cities.
- I drove down to Tucson with the Boif to drop him and his mom off at the U of Arizona (working on his Masters, she, her DMA) with the requisite stop in Vegas. Possibly one of the only times that gay folks have stayed at the Hooters Casino & Resort. Despite the reputation, the hotel was nice, the food was good, and the pools were wonderful. It certainly is a sign of addiction when you make it your goal to get to St. George in less than 4 hours because that’s when the Starbucks closes. We then rushed to get to Vegas in less 2 hours, but very clearly going the speed limit, officer, because I had never seen the Bellagio dancing water live before, and we would be leaving before the ‘shows’ start the next day. And Boif + mom thought it important for me, seeing as how I love spectacle. Totally wonderful. Glad that when we were there when they were not playing Time to say goodbye; partially because I’m not a large fan of it in general, but it is Sarah Brightman singing. Just like Anna Netrebko, not a large fan. That said, I do like Anna much more than Sarah.
- I have been in the chorus of Utah Opera‘s productions of Macbeth & Carmen (Italian girl in Algiers is coming up in March though). These three shows have been wonderful to be in, as they have given me the opportunity to meet a lot of fun people(chorus and principals), get paid to do something I’m going to school for *concept*, and just have a lot of fun in general. Despite the obvious, it makes me feel like I am a “professional” singer, but not in chorus, if that makes sense. I think that Macbeth was the most informative, and network building of the shows, Carmen the most fun off stage and I believe that Italian girl will be the most fun on stage, seeing as how staging rehearsals are going.
From now on, I promise to keep all of my readers updated much more. Henceforth and all that jazz.
